A disappointng turnout but an excellent evening. Well organised and well presented. It was a great opportunity to meet the players and coaching staff as well as meeting some of the 'club legends'.

The legends were my heroes when I was a kid and last night brought back a lot of happy memories. I hope the current crop of players got an insight into the history of our club and want to be the players who are invited back in 30 years time to do a similar sort of thing.

I just wish more people would support it. It is not about whether you like the shirt design or quality. Last night was an opportunity to put any question you liked to players past and present, coaching staff and meet with the directors but the turnout was very poor.

I think those that did go had a good night and those that didn't really missed out.

There were also flyers in the Sheffield programme and a couple of newsletter emails. It was also read out over the PA at the match on Tuesday.

I guess a good question would be "How do you consume your Rovers news?" What are the best forums to publicise club events?

The legends out numbered the supporters at an excellent evening!

Great night Martin, you and Daryl seem to be getting a long very well indeed. As you say, nothing to do with the design or questionable quality of the shirt but an opportunity to watch the Leigh v Barrow fixture, socialable pint with fellow supporters and have a good laugh (Vince was on top form!).

Turnout was a disgrace, mind you the Pie Hut was closed!

What does the design look like? Is the quality as good as the home shirt?

Problem is Martin, well certainly from my point of view Rovers game Tuesday, out all day with Warriors game Sat then back to Fev for Rovers game Sun. Spend any more time with anything associated with an oval ball and my marriage would be in trouble. Also Thursday nights are when all the amateur teams train

Saw a picture of it on facebook. Same design as the home shirt but instead of blue, its red.

I know that remark is tongue in cheek but i do think it is unfair. The away shirt should have been launched at the same time as the home one. To ask fans to come out inbetween two games that are only 5 days apart is too much. I used to be with the joint supporters and i know how difficult it is to organise events and get people to turn up. At the end of the day you are appealing to the same people over and over again Their pockets are only so deep. Once the season has started most fans are using what spare cash they have to support the team.

Again I think the point is being missed... Nobody had to buy a shirt or even like it. But 10 great players who served the club were present and it would have been good to see the fans out number them. I know it was between two games etc, etc. However the turnout was appalling, I am just stating fact. It was a free evening.

This club is going to die if we do not re-ignite the supporter base and attract new supporters.

It is time we all talked it up rather than down. Of course there are problems - there always are, but lets keep them internal - be critical in private and all go out and sell Featherstone Rovers. That costs nothing!
